Los Angeles Rams TE Tyler Higbee (knee) is expected to be fully cleared from the knee injury that he suffered in last season's NFC Championship Game by the start of the regular season, if not sooner.
Huddle Up: Although Higbee's injury required surgery, he was able to resume practicing in May. The 29-year-old had 61 catches for 560 yards and five touchdowns in 15 games last season. From a fantasy standpoint, he should be viewed more as a matchup-based streaming option than a lineup regular.

Los Angeles Rams TE Tyler Higbee (knee) said the Rams plans to bring him along slowly, "knowing we have some time before the season."
Huddle Up: Higbee can have an occasional solid game, but Cooper Kupp has become the clear focal point of the Los Angeles passing attack now that Matthew Stafford is under center. Assuming his recovery remains on track, Higbee can be a matchup-based streaming option, but he isn't an every-week play.

Los Angeles Rams TE Tyler Higbee was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Feb. 11.
Huddle Up: Higbee was not able to recover his injury in two weeks, so he will miss Super Bowl LVI. Kendall Blanton likely will be the starting tight end for the Rams this week but probably will not be a big part of the passing game.

Los Angeles Rams TE Tyler Higbee (knee) is considered day-to-day because of his knee injury and probably will not practice early in the week.
Huddle Up: Higbee probably can play in Super Bowl LVI even if he does not practice much this week. He will see a handful of targets if he plays and can be a No. 1 fantasy tight end.

Los Angeles Rams TE Tyler Higbee (knee) suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament during the NFC Championship game and is considered day-to-day.
Huddle Up: Higbee has two weeks to recover from the injury but probably will not do much during practice leading up to Super Bowl. He has been a reliable part of the passing game this season and can be a starting fantasy option if he plays.

Los Angeles Rams TE Tyler Higbee (knee) 'appears to have avoided any significant damage' to his knee, according to a source. However, his availability for Super Bowl LVI 'will be up in the air and decided over the next two weeks,' according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.
Huddle Up: Kendall Blanton stepped up in a big way in Higbee's absence in the NFC Championship and would likely be a decent bet for at least five targets in the Super Bowl if Higbee is unable to make it back in time. Fantasy managers will need to pay attention to the injury reports in the days leading up to the Super Bowl, as this would appear to be one of those situations that could end up being a game-time call.
